Region

Part of the larger Canelones regions, Atlántida nestles between Montevideo city and the Atlantic region of Maldonado on the coast. This small region leans more towards the coastal breezes and cooler temperatures of Maldonado than the humidity and heavy soils of Canelones. It supports a mix of red and white varietals, largely produced by smaller family-run wineries.

Producer

The property has been in the Fallabrino family since 1947; winemaker Pablo Fallabrino produces quality-driven wines in small quantities utilising a modern winery but at the same time continues to explore forgotten, old or less known winemaking techniques. He has a soft spot for Italian varieties, innovation and quirkiness; a true artisan, a rebel with a fine hand, and deep understanding of wine. His vineyards are located where the River Plate estuary and the Atlantic Ocean meet, providing clean cool ocean breezes and an ideal climate for the maturation of fine wine grapes.

Viticulture

Using no insecticide and dry no-till farming, the family practices sustainable farming and minimal intervention viticulture. The grapes are hand harvested.

Vinification

Sourced from a 12ha vineyard, located next to the coast, where the River Plate estuary meets the Atlantic Ocean. Soils are made of calcareous white and brown clays. Hand-harvested. Spontaneous fermentation in 100% stainless steel. Unfiltered.

Tasting Note

Naturally low in tannins, and with refreshing acidity, this unoaked Barbera showcases the purity of fruit capable with this variety in Atlantida. Classic aromas of dark cherries and plums with lively acidity and great refreshment, a wine meant to be enjoyed young.

Food Matching

Ravioli of pork cheeks, mushroom-based pasta dishes, guinea fowl or chicken
